1. Apply for funding to support your professional development
Now, individual postdocs can apply for up to $100 in funding to support their professional development. Examples include:
– Virtual conference registration

– Career workshops
Apply here for funding! There is no deadline to apply, we will review applications on a rolling basis as opportunities arise. See here for details and requirements.
2. Job materials swap
TUPA hosts a job materials swap to trade materials with other postdocs and share feedback on resumes/CV, cover letters, teaching statements, etc. This is a great way to get input from people outside of your field! E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested in joining, and we’ll email you with more details about sharing materials virtually.
Use this group to increase your accountability for making progress on writing, research-related tasks, networking, job applications, or anything else.
Meet with fellow postdocs each week to set goals and discuss progress.
Tuesdays 9:00 – 9:30 am
E-mail email@example.com to join.
4. Free editing for your work!

Postdocs are also encouraged to serve as volunteer editors, with low time commitment and valuable editing experience.
